Fixed that for you.

If a pro has their gear and it's working they'll decimate you. Hell, even if their gear isn't working they're still not useless.

It's more like 75% Skill and 25% Gear... Throw Dynasty in the ring with no pads, spyders, gravity fed hoppers and CO2 against any beginner team. What do you think the outcome would be??

Ever heard of the phrase accuracy by volume? Don't forget about the inconsistency of the CO2. Without pads they can't gracefully slide into position as usual. They would have to run and slow down to a stop. Talk about easy breakshooting...

Actually, the pads are there to protect you as you dive/slide.
So yes they would be able to slide and dive as gracefully, but in the process they may damage their joints. Ofc it wont happen after one dive but a full day without pads you definitly feel it.

Dynasty would still win. I think you are seriously overestimating the skills of a beginner team. Top tier teams have great communication and field awareness, things that only come from experience.

Dynasty with spyders/tippmanns would not beat the average d4 team.

IDK about that... It would level it up a lot... but the level of skill ANY pro team has... it's just not really comprehend able. I've seen pump teams hold their own against D4/3 teams (It was the one who one World Cup, TN Trueballers, but still the point it they had pumps vs PSP 12.5). It's because they have a different level of skill, pro teams like Dynasty have true athletes. A good D3 or decent D2 would beat them if they were using spyders but a D4 team... maybe if they were a sandbagged team out of hell sure.

Have you guys ever ran matches or drills against pro players? In any 1v1 drill against a d4 players 9/10 times the pro will one ball you. Seriously, technically and mentally, pros are superior to legitimate d4. Their awareness and ability to be on target with their first shot is what makes them bounds ahead of d4 players

True statement, here. The first ball accuracy is phenomenal, not to mention the superior field awareness. Reaction times are better, meaning they need much less time to assess whether or not a bump/move is possible. By the time a less experienced player realizes a move is open, the higher level player has already made the move, and is in position to shoot. The gear and marker argument has some traction, but I don't think it has a devastating impact on the outcome of this type of game, with the exception of OTB, in my humble opinion.

Speaking of first ball accuracy - not too many beginners can do this....

KLR is an Australian company that deals in paintball gear.
Their website has issues so I can't view their products.
Might just be an overseas distributor for HK ( makes sense).

KLR stands for Kudos Love Rebel

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
